Re: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter produced by Tim Burton in the work

The book is tons of fun...the author also wrote the screenplay. Burton is only producing the film...I wonder why one would assume Burton is also directing this film and judge it based on that?
Well Tim Burton didn't direct The Nightmare Before Christmas either, and yet there aren't many Tim Burton films any Tim Burtonier. So I kind of assume Tim Burton's involvement will mean recognizably 'Tim Burton' repurposing of Gothic and Expressionist styles for the movie.

Also never saw a Timbur Bekmambetov film. I remember seeing the trailer to Wanted years ago, which looked dreadful, but maybe this'll seem more enticing.
